Description of problem:
When attempting to specify a target architecture higher than i386 (i.e. i486,
i586, etc), rpmbuild returns an error saying that the architecture is not
I see no reason the architecture would not be supported. Even noarch packages
will build with a target architecture specified; the option simply has no
effect on them.

Steps to Reproduce:
Simply execute the command "rpmbuild --rebuild --target=foobar" where foobar
is any x86 compatible 32-bit architecture higher than i386 (i.e. i486, i586,
Actual Results: "error: Architecture is not included: i686"
Expected Results: The package should have built properly.
Of the 226 Source RPMS distributed with FC4, this is one of only a handful of
Source RPMS that does not support a more advanced target architecture (i.e.
i486, i586, etc). Even Source RPMS in which a higher target architecture will
yield no practical improvements allow a higher target architecture to be
